Waxing Side Effects: The face has some of the most delicate skin on the body, so some of the most common side effects of facial waxing include rashes, redness, sore skin, bumpiness, stinging, and ingrown hairs. Those with darker skin tones have experienced temporary skin discoloration post-waxing. These effects are mostly temporary, meaning that even if you experience them, it should clear up relatively quickly.
